A Wonderland Finish

Earlier in the week, I showed you my work in progress on my mini quilt for Katarina Roccella’s new line Wonderland. It’s based on Alice in Wonderland. I love this line, though not my typical fabric choices, as the prints have subtle but great details and the color palette is not too girly but rich. It provides a lot of interest for me.

These are the prints I started out with, but as mentioned I loved these that I went and got all the additional prints too. My mini quilt is my own design (from a QDAD design) and on Monday I shared with you the blocks required for the two columns.

Here is how the mini quilt finished up. The crosses are bright pink and a very pale pink. That pale pink fabric actually has a shimmery silver through it that is so delicious. I finished the quilt with the pale blue Enchanted Leaves Air fabric, highlighting the blue in the focus blocks.

I made a very simple back, again tying in the blue from the focus blocks.

The quilting was a 1″ straight diagonal lines in a combination of a loftier batting (than I usually use), which gave this quilt a great texture.
